Trongate 103 Arts Centre

Elder and Cannon Architects

Trongate 103 has been formed as a new creative hub in Glasgow City Centre giving access to linked galleries, a restaurant, exhibition areas and workshops, as well as providing visitors with an introduction to a large cross section of the arts.

The site consisted of 3 B-listed buildings, which needed a substantial repairwork. Internally, two atriums have been introduced into the horseshoe arrangement of the existing buildings – a public double height volume at ground level linking gallery spaces with the entrance concourse, and an upper floor volume making visible how each of the eight organisation interacts with the building.
